PHOENIX — A vendor employee was caught on video stealing laptop computers from Mayo Clinic in North Phoenix.

Phoenix police report that on May 16 they arrested 33-year-old Anthony Rudolf Rodriguez for allegedly stealing laptop computers from the Mayo Clinic.

Rodriguez works for Kearney Electric and Communications, who is a vendor for Mayo. As a vendor, Rodriguez had access to the "support services building."

Rodriguez allegedly used this access to steal several laptop computers.

Inside the building, the video reportedly shows Rodriguez entering various cubicles.

Support services staff reported the stolen computers later that morning.

Management at Kearny Electric identified Rodriguez as the person in the video.

Rodriguez reportedly told police that the bags were his and contained his tools and equipment.

He's been charged with burglary.
